    Best: Lost in the Echo. That shouldn't even be a question. This is Linkin Park distilled into a hell of an album opener. You want a definitive song? You got it. It helps that the opening synth has a bit of a Streets of Rage vibe to it.

    Worst: Victimized, by far. I can enjoy a short punk song. I can enjoy spastic genre flipping. However, this song is just sloppy. The punk atmosphere is neutered by the two other tones the song has and it isn't nearly long enough for the changes to not be annoyingly jarring. Until it Breaks is able to settle into a mood before switching gears. This can't.

    Lost in the Echo - 10/10
    In My Remains - 9/10
    Burn it Down - 6/10
    Lies Greed Misery - 9/10
    I'll Be Gone - 9.5/10
    Castle of Glass - 10/10
    Victimized - 10/10
    Roads Untraveled - 8/10
    Skin to Bone - 9.5/10
    Until it Breaks - 8/10
    Tinfoil - 9.5/10
    Powerless - 10/10

    In my opinion, the perfect album. Currently debating whether it's better than Hybrid Theory but for me it's miles better than M2M and ATS. Burn it Down felt like it didn't belong on the album personally, while Lost in the Echo and Castle of Glass were my highlights, as well as the beautiful ending and heavy headbanging awesomeness in Victimized

    Worst: Burn It Down (after hearing the whole album, I get a feeling like they were "on some What I've Done" shit with this one), Until It Breaks

    Favorites: Castle of Glass, Roads Untravelled, Until it Breaks, Skin to Bone
    Worst: Burn it Down, Lost in the Echo, I'll Be Gone (all pretty generic) and Lies Greed Misery (just unappealing to me)

    Overall, FAR better than I expected. The first five (minus In My Remains) were bland and forgettable; but damn, from COG on they had their shit together. I don't even particularly like Victimized but I really appreciate how "out there" it is.

    Super favorite: Lost In the Echo
    Also good: I'll be gone
    Not so pleased with: Skin to bone
    still not sure about the others...

    For me Lost In the Echo is the most powerful... despite the lyrics that I haven't fully understood yet, it makes me feel a hopeful feeling of "finally getting there", kind of thing... IDK this song is magic!

    Least Favorite: Lies Greed Misery. It's grown on me A LOT since I first heard it though and I love it.

    Damn this album is awesome!!!

    I didn't hate any of them, I was really pleased with them all. For me, it kinda fell into 4 categories; "Surprised the Shit Out of Me", "Reminiscently Awesome", "Epic", and simply "Good"

    Surprised Me:
    Castle of Class
    Victimized

    Reminiscently Awesome:
    Lost in the Echo
    In My Remains
    I'll Be Gone
    Lies Greed Misery

    Epic:
    Roads Untraveled
    Skin-To-Bone

    Good:
    Burn it Down
    Powerless
    Until it Breaks

    I can EASILY say this is my favorite album by LP thus far and I could honestly listen to this album front to back without skipping a song.

    Yeah this is definitely an album that you can listen to from start to finish without skipping any songs. That's how every LP album has been for me though haha

    Okay, after a few more listens, SKIN TO BONE is definitely up there with UNTIL IT BREAKS for me.

    Until it break by far is the worse song on the cd. Once you all get Over the initial excitement of him singing and realize that part ruins the entire song?!? It starts off with this edgy raw shinida rapping and the. Goes all down hill from there on out. I tried so hard but that song is horrible. The bridge/ending ruins wveryrbing

    Lost In The Echo is the only stand out track. It his album is more like something my 16 year old sister would listen to then my 27 year old friends what. Grand electronic pop just bieber music. Just because it's different doesn't mean it's good . By far the worst album they've made

    Like think about it . Could you grab this album hop in a friends car and be like " dude !! You gotta here this!!" hell no he'd laugh at you. It sounds like pop music. Remember I'm the same guy who belongs to LP association . I love the band but this is not good. Where did their edge go? The rawness ? 4 best songs LITE,COG,LGM,IBG
